Default TSWV ?

I just found this on the next plant to remove from the garden. It looks a lot like tomato leaves in a couple of recent threads. I'm just curious if it is TSWV?

Looks kinda like a phosphorus deficiency with a little leaf burn from chemical.

Doesn't look like the TSWV I have, spray the plant with Bills Bleach mix, if the infected leaves die its EB LB etc.

Thanks everyone.

I've already pulled the plant. It has both RKN and Fusarium. The leaves weren't yellowing yet, but the lower stem showed fusarium when I cut into it. All the plants in that garden are being removed.

I went through all the stages and have reached the point of realizing it's time to move on. We'll start getting the garden area ready for chickens next year. It'll be something new and challenging.

I should mention we have other places to grow in on this 10 acres.

I guess the purpleling of the leaves was from the RKN? Plant couldn't get the nutrients it needed?

You've had a heck of a year with your maters. The education I'm getting at your expense is nauseating and priceless at the same time.

Ray, I thought that was a sign too. There was no wilt on that plant though.

It's the only time I've seen that purple look in my 7 years of tomato gardening. It is/was on only that one plant. It's in a burning pile now.

I meant reply earlier. I haven't seen RKN present leaves looking like that. But with RKN choking off the roots, and fusarium blocking the vascular system - it was no longer getting nutrients.

Hopefully, I can start helping others in the future with more positive results.

I know how aggravating this is... it was 4 TSWV yesterday, 10 today...
I'm ready to give up too.

But you know what? If it was easy... everyone would be an expert, growing/eating 4# tomatoes...
